How far along: 27 weeks - hello 3rd trimester...I think. Honestly, this whole trimester thing is confusing to me. Different sites/books say different things - one says 27 weeks...the other 28 weeks - so really who knows?!
Baby Size: a cucumber
Maternity clothes: not yet, but I did buy a Bellaband for my jeans and shorts (work pants still fit fine!) Also finally using the rubber band trick. I can still button most of my jeans and shorts but it's not the most comfortable thing so these two things are helping tremendously.
Stretch marks: I think I might see the very beginning of some on my belly...the hubs says no though - so I dunno. I'm still slathering on the Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter in hopes of keeping them away.
Sleep: definitely not great that's for sure
Gender: A lil' boy
Movement: yup moves more and more each day
Looking forward to: vacation <3
Food cravings: still wanting lots of fresh fruit, especially watermelon, strawberries, and grapes!! Oh, and banana bread - I could easily eat an entire loaf by myself every.single.day YUM!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope, and still super thankful for this!
Labor Signs: Zip. Zero. Zilch.
What I miss: running (but you know that's a given), bending over easily, having a waist/abs, sleeping soundly
Symptoms: SPD soreness, lower back achiness especially when I sit for too long (makes for long days at work!), and more cellulite on my thighs/larger thighs. That's right - keepin' it real folks...
Nursery: crib and dresser are put together - so crazy to see baby furniture in that room!!! Matt painted the inside of the closet so that just needs to get touched up. So next up is buying some cute prints to hang on the walls and figuring out an organization system in the closet. The nursery is a super small room so the closet is going to have to be a big source of storage/organization for us.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Workouts: same old same old - lots of time on the elliptical...still doing my upper body strength exercises...and still stretching lots. I'm getting bored of this, though, so I might try something new after vacation - maybe buy a pregnancy pilates DVD or something like that.
Things that suck: see symptoms answer above...
Things that don't suck: getting house projects done!! Seriously, it feels good to get some of these big projects done so we can start focusing on the baby and getting ready for his arrival!!
